    (CNN)"Cruel Summer" is set in the 1990s and shares its name with a Bananarama song from the '80s, but its bingeable qualities make it nicely suited to the 2020s. How well that will translate to Freeform, the Disney-owned cable network, could be another matter, but this time-twisting soap opera certainly doesn't suffer from a lack of narrative ambition.The series unfolds over a series of days in 1993, 1994 and 1995, briskly oscillating among them in each episode -- as events move along, remaining a year or two apart -- while dropping clue after clue in a series of mysteries.At the core of it all is Jeanette (Chiara Aurelia), a shy girl with braces when we first meet her on her 15th birthday, a confident and transformed one a year later, and a dour figure under suspicion by the police the year after that. Her fate is inextricably tied to that of Kate (Olivia Holt, graduating from Disney Channel fare), beautiful and popular, who is abducted and missing in the second year, and dealing with the fallout and psychological aftermath of...

    It’s a twist-filled romp through the ’90s in Freeform’s new thriller, “Cruel Summer.” “I think we all need a good mystery right now, and I think that this show is it,” series star Olivia Holt, 23, told The Post.  Premiering Tuesday, April 20 (9 p.m.) and set in small-town Texas, the psychological thriller, produced by Jessica Biel (“The Sinner”), takes place over the course of three summers (1993-95). It centers on the story of popular teen girl Kate Wallis (Holt, “Cloak & Dagger”), who goes missing, and her wallflower classmate Jeanette (Chiara Aurelia), who goes through a dramatic transformation over the three years from nerd to popular girl to hated outsider. As “Cruel Summer” unfolds, signs point to Jeanette’s involvement in Kate’s disappearance —  but the audience is kept on their toes about what really happened and who to believe. Kate’s mom Joy (Andrea Anders) thinks Jeanette is at fault, but it’s unclear if that’s the case.
